Dragon Age: Inquisition's Producer Reckons Skyrim Changed the RPG Genre Completely

The sons of Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may be several years old now, but it still holds enough sway to spark conversation around the 'net.

The Unfinished Swan (PlayStation 4)

Placeholder strapline

Back in 2012, when indie startup Giant Sparrow released The Unfinished Swan, we were bowled over by it, awarding it a rare 10/10 in our review. Understandably, we were subsequently ecstatic when Sony announced earlier in the year that it was bringing the curious campaign to the PlayStation 4 alongside fellow digital download...

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires Will Feature English Voice Acting, Marches On With Its First Trailer

Voice of the conqueror

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition was the last Warriors title to feature an English dub, much to the disappointment of many fans who have wanted to hear incredibly cheesy voice acting since.

WWE 2K15 (PlayStation 3)

Low blow

If you’re a wrestling fan, it’s been hard to ignore 2K Sports’ constant bragging about just how revolutionary WWE 2K15 is going to be. However, while this certainly looks to be true with the PlayStation 4 version, the recycled gameplay and samey ideas present in the last-gen effort leave a lot to be desired. When booting up the game...

Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis (PlayStation Network)

Heart breaker

This writer’s reputation for revelling in mediocre games is well regarded around the Push Square office, and Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis is another one of those middling titles that’s ingratiated itself to this strange scribe. An updated version of last year’s Xbox 360 and PC release, this Indiana Jones-inspired romp...

What Does Dying Light Do to Resurrect the Zombie Apocalypse on PS4?

The freewheelin' mob killing

Dying Light finds itself in an odd position. With its last-gen version recently cancelled, and developer Techland touting a renewed focus on fluidity and polish, the parkour-‘em-up’s future feels slightly unclear. We recently went hands on with the title at PAX Australia, and – after being ushered

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PS4 Reviews Look to the Future

Cloud Atlas

Compared to the months of pre-release hype that Destiny received, we can’t help but feel that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is somewhat sneaking onto store shelves. The biggest gaming brand on the planet has taken a slight stumble in recent years, with the disappointing Call of Duty: Ghosts compounding a decline in annual sales...

What's the Best Price for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PS4 in the UK?

Spacey age

And so the silly season begins in earnest. There have been a number of high-profile releases over the past couple of months, but November’s impending software tidal wave is truly something to behold. With the likes of Assassin’s Creed Unity and Grand Theft Auto V on the way, we suspect that a fair few of you will be counting your...

There Are Almost Eight Million PlayStation Plus Subscribers Globally

Level up

PlayStation Plus is a funny service. Largely unprecedented as a value proposition, it’s hard to shake the feeling that some of the premium membership’s more outrageous offerings have come back to bite it in the bottom. While the platform holder has been giving away critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 games like Velocity 2X and Dust: An...

How Has the PS4 Fared in Its First Year?

Report card

It’s been a funny first year for the PlayStation 4. Sony’s next-gen format has smashed sales records all over the globe, but the positivity that punctuated the platform’s launch has been replaced by an air of unrest over the past few weeks. The question is: has the system’s success paved the way for the fickle to pick fault, or...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 44

Day disbeliever

Surely, surely it’s not WAYP time already? The clock on this writer’s PC toolbar says that it’s Saturday, but these articles come around so quickly that we’re struggling to believe it. That said, there’s Premier League on the television and we did spot James Martin on BBC One this morning, so we’re pretty confident that...

Sony Temporarily Slashes the PS4's Price in the UK

Just in time for Call of Duty

While many have been eager to suggest that Sony won’t compete with the Xbox One’s temporary price drop in the United States, we noted in a recent feature that it’s been frequently adjusting the cost of the PlayStation 4 in the UK to keep its nose in front. Indeed, while the system hasn’t ever received any...
